Book Note: Ellis Peters, The Raven in the Foregate

I read this book about 20-Oct-2004. I've read this book before. The book is copyright 1986. This note was last modified Monday, 19-May-2014 16:54:16 PDT.

This is book 12 of the "Brother Cadfael" series.

This note contains spoilers for the book.


The twelfth chronicle of Brother Cadfael -- as it says on the cover of this UK paperback; which is a breakthrough, as until shortly earlier they didn't even list prior books of a series in order in the book.

A new and much-hated priest assigned to the parish church doesn't last three months before he turns up dead. Suspicion falls on a man who came with him and is a novice in the monastery -- he's even been denounced as a traitor.

There is in fact much political intrigue, fallout of the civil war going on. But the priest wasn't murdered, actually. Quite.
